Osimhen has had a fantastic start this season for Lille

Ahead of their matchday 18 clash at home to Montpellier, Super Eagles blazing forward, Victor Osimhen is looking to give the Lille fans a perfect Christmas gift later Friday night when they line up for their last league game of the calendar year, reports.


The 20-year-old, who has found scoring easy at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy this season, will hope to extend his good fortunes as his side continue their push on second-placed Olympique Marseille who are away at Metz.


Having been rested for their final Champions League group game loss to Chelsea on Tuesday night, the Eagles forward is expected to return to the starting XI for the visit of Montpellier with Christophe Galtier and his lad hoping to extend their domestic form to four wins.


The game will also offer the Nigerian a chance to extend his domestic goal tally for the French club, having scored nine goals in fourteen starts as he aims for double figures in the league ahead of their next doubleheader encounters against Monaco.


Lille currently seats 3rd in the Ligue 1 table with 28 points from 17 games, 11 points behind leaders PSG, with Marseille occupying the second spot with 34 points.
